Academic Works About the Artist

Since the 1980s, term papers, theses and doctoral dissertations on VALIE EXPORT have been written on an ongoing basis, some of which can be found in the artist's library. These works are preceded by correspondences, some of which are preserved in the documentary archive. The majority of the authors are women who have chosen one of the artist's themes as the focus of their research and have completed their studies with writings on topics such as Feminist Aesthetics, Feminist Discourse, the Staging of Pain, or Staged Corporeality and the Medium of Video.

Starting on the first of June a small selection of these numerous academic papers will be on view at the Center. The documentation of these studies offers a representative insight into the artistic and scientific research and thematic focuses on VALIE EXPORT by students at national and international universities. In addition, this forms a basis and an active archive on which researchers can continue to work.
